On Friday night, January 20, Glory kicks off 2017 with their first big kickboxing event of the year. Glory 37 is live from Los Angeles and will be headlined by a pair of world title fights. The show starts with the Superfight Series which airs on UFC Fight Pass at 10:30 p.m. ET. That is followed by the main Glory 37 card live on ESPN3 at 1:00 a.m. ET.

The featured fights on the night are a pair of world title fights - both first time defenses for new champions. Headlining is Middleweight champion Jason Wilnis, fresh off his upset victory over Simon Marcus. He takes on the dangerous Israel Adesanya in a very tough test for the new champ. On the Superfight Series, the headliner sees action from Robin van Roosmalen, the new Glory Featherweight champion and first ever Glory two-division champion, as he defends against KO artist Matt Embree.

Also featured on the card is the latest from MMA veteran Guto Inocente - he's a perfect 3-0 in Glory and looks to keep his impressive rise up the Glory ranks going. There's also a Welterweight tournament featuring former title challenger Yoann Kongolo and Karim Benmansour, plus fights from Giga Chikadze and former Bellator champion Zoila Frausto among others.
